Where does the collection come from?

The intriguing collection belongs to Roag Best who has been hoarding Beatles memorabilia for over thirty years. Roag’s father was the late Neil Aspinall. Neil was the Beatles’ Road Manager and confidante and later became head of Apple Corps spearheading such Beatle ventures as Beatles No 1, Let It Be Naked, The Anthology and Love (Cirque du Soleil). The Beatles counted Neil as their friend and he was trusted by them implicitly. Neil was constantly surrounded by The Beatles and so, throughout his life, was Roag.

Roag’s brother is Pete Best. He was a member of The Beatles for two years from 1960-1962 and was in for the ride from the seminal Casbah Coffee Club through to Hamburg, the Cavern and ultimately Abbey Road Studios. Pete’s insights into the early years are without doubt of crucial significance to the universal legend that is The Beatles.

Roag’s mother was the pioneering Mona Best. As the founder of the Casbah Coffee Club, the first rock and roll club in Liverpool, Mona has been dubbed the “Mother of Mersey beat”. She provided The Beatles with a venue to practice and perform in that Sir Paul McCartney affectionately refers to as “our club”. She managed many of their early business affairs and amongst many other things championed their return to Hamburg after their deportation.

Set to the musical backdrop that changed the world and inspired a generation, the provenance of this fascinating collection is unparalleled globally and thanks to Roag’s rare, deep and personal connections, visitors will find themselves shoulder to shoulder with the Beatles on the journey from 1959 to 1970.

      Pretty decent museum, I’m a big Beatles fan and was interested to see the original memorabilia on show. The entry price is very steep considering it isn’t a massive exhibition and feel a lot of it... Read full review
